Question about Cars & Trucks
My 2005 Uplander will slam into gear some times. I have been told it could be the Vehicle Speed sensor. Not sure though. It is not slipping it just slams into gear. I need to know if I have to drop the transmission to get to it or is there an easier way? Or any Ideas what would cause it to slam into gear and yes the fluids are fine.
To change the license plate light bulb on a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu sedan reach the bulb socket from the inside of the trunk lid. The socket turns a 1/4 turn or so and pulls out. Bulb just pulls straight out of the socket, don't turn it.

Myself I would give the fluid filter change a shot.
If the fluid still looks good then most likely you haven't smoked any clutches. It could just be the filter is clogged and not picking up fluid properly.
Of course it is possible that it is something more serious.
Parts store should be able to hook you up with correct filter and probably capacity.

The switch that tells the computer what gear the car is in is bad. It's located on top of trans and can be replaced fairly easy. If it is white or gray it has been revised to black. Believe it is called range selector switch. About 80.00 at Ford dealer.

Yes you didn't give me code number, with out it my best guess is broken wire at vss sensor near rt drive axle there is a purple wire with a white stripe & a light geen wire with black stripe both in a black conduit pull out & pull on wire gently if they come apart you found it resolder or get new connector at GM dealer

Good Evening, I have a dumb question. have you cleared any current or history codes in the transmission? They will default with codes in the system. Also make note on what they are. If any and we can go from there, and yes tcm would be the next place to go but more info is best as far as codes and such.

The vehicle speed sensor is made up of a coil mounted on the transmission and a tooth rotor mounted to the output shaft of the transmission. As each tooth nears the coil, the coil produces an AC voltage pulse. As the vehicle speed increases the number of voltage pulses per second increases.
